  1. G1 Engine Replacement - Radiator Too? Questions...

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I just got a bad diagnosis on my 2008 Ridgeline RTL. There was an issue with the timing belt and now it appears I need a new engine. At least that seems to be the better bet since a head/valve job is not much cheaper and I'd still have an engine with almost 180k miles on it. I've found a...

  3. Does My New Radiator Look Damaged

    1G Problems & Issues
    Yo - my new Denso radiator arrived today. I got it off Rock Auto, and it was the ‘best seller’ one. Just over 150. I opened it to inspect the radiator because I’ve read posts here about them coming damaged. I’m not mechanically inclined, so I’m posting here to ask for advice. Does this look...
  4. Honda Radiator source

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    The radiator and transmission posts in these forums have been great. It just happened to me and I would have been lost without them. The trouble is, I found a Honda radiator (19010-RJE-A52) on Amazon for $140.00 and it arrived with a manufacturing defect; it is trapezoid shaped. Yes, that's...
  5. Radiator Change - My Experience

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Hi all, after reading the service manual it looked pretty straight forward however there are some items that one should have ready before making the change. I also picked up a Spectra radiator. The ATF fittings were already tight despite what some of posts indicate that they were lose. 1...
  6. Radiator Fail on 2006

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    My 2006 Ridge with 180K miles, suddenly steam from under the hood, stopped moving, antifreeze and tranny oil all over the place. I assumed the tranny cooler leaked into the radiator. Actually the tranny fluid feed line popped out of the radiator, that not only lets the tranny fluid get pumped...

    1G Problems & Issues
    Hi, I've been a member of this forum for a while and gathered a lot of great information before I bought my Ridgeline, 06 RTS with 75k, but this is my first post. The fitting on my radiator is pretty corroded and I'm concerned with it failing and causing the strawberry milkshake. I don't...
  8. Sudden transmission weirdness

    1G Problems & Issues
    So it looks like its transmission problem season. First post and not mechanically inclined, so please bear with me. 2007 RTL with 137k miles Regular maintenance (though I am over due on the latest B126(?) due to work obligations). Driving home today with the family and noticed the CEL came on...
  9. Radiator Protector Screen for 2013?

    1G Exterior
    I just bought a 2013 RTS and the first thing I did was install fog lights and a sport grille. While I had the front end off I started thinking this would have been a good time to install screens behind the lower openings to protect the radiator fins from stone strikes. What I have in mind is...
  10. Radiator Mount

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I recently bought my Ridgeline and was looking at it a little more closely. It's a 2006 RTS. Just noticed today that the radiator moves just a little or has some play so to speak. Is it supposed to be secured more tightly? I've uploaded a pic where it looks like some sort of mount or...
